Under the terms of the settlement, Live Nation would have to give free tickets and discount coupons to hundreds of thousands of affected customers.
The company was sued in 2009 over a $6 parking fee that was tacked onto ‘no-fee’ tickets at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey. The two men that sued said the parking fee was illegal because not all people drive and that a ‘no-fee’ promotion was a lie.
Around 363,000 people who went to concerts at PNC Bank Arts Center over the past eight years would be entitled to three free lawn tickets and $5 discount coupons. Live Nation would get to pick and choose which shows this would apply to and wouldn’t have to admit any guilt.
The settlement has not yet reached final approval by a federal judge.
